Hello my fellow Sound Friends! I come to you with a curious situation.
So two nights ago while shooting a short film at some ungodly hour, my NTG3 craps out. Prior to fully not working, it started sputtering static here and there. I was recording into a 744t, and thought the cabling might be loose, so i jiggled it around here and there, but it didn't fix it. Then the signal just cuts out completely. Luckily there was a back up mic and I was able to finish the night.
So today I test the mic at home, and what do you know. It works! However I think the mic sounds differently now, like the mic is required to be closer to your mouth to get the same amount of presence. Who knows, maybe i'm just psyching my self out.
Has anyone else had this problem with their mics in the past? Could my mic some how be damaged? Thanks for your time!
